this case which is that this is the single greatest achievement of the obama administration. it remains not tangible for the majority of people that it will one day benefit. there's concrete benefits up front. there's already things that have kicked in, etc., but the vast majority of people who will benefit have not benefitted yet. a lot of those are folks who i think are on the margins of our political conversation who if it was different from one day to the next, having health care, not having health care would know they have a stake in it. >> this is the challenge of messaging i think in any campaign but in particular this campaign. i think if we were writing the retrospective on this election, it's the counter factual stupid election because romney is out there saying things could have been so much better than they are. >> think about the counter factual. you're saying the obama campaign should be saying, you're going to be so much better off than you are. think about that. and that's a really tough campaign to run. >> that's because the status quo is mired in this frustrating kind

actions by the obama administration in their first year. we're ahead of what you would think a typical financial crisis would bring. we've handled it better than europe has, and yet, i still think policymakers missed some of the rhinehart rowgof lessons and a little too optimistic about how much help the economy needed in 2010 and '11 and even into this year. >> and david, one of the things that i was talking about earlier with charlie cook, our own analysis and his, that the next congress is going to be much more hyper partisan, just based on who is not running and who is running and who won primaries in largely, you know, republican districts and blue dogs retiring or getting defeated and that this hyper partisan congress of mostly newcomers will be there three years or less, are less likely to go along with the traditional arguments of the business leaders, jamie dimon and others, saying you have to do something about the fiscal cliff. this is more like tarp one when we look at the debt ceiling and some of the other things. depending on who is elected president. >> i think that's po

administration. >>> president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy, the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. mayor bloomberg wrote in part, the devastation brought to the area brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees climate change as a threat to our planet. the other does not. i want risk management above electoral politics. but the endorsement wasn't what we call in the business ringing. bloomberg, a republican turned independent who didn't back a candidate in 2008, took a swipe at the president in that endorsement writing, if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. like so many other independents, i found the past four years to be, in a word, disappointing. there's your endorsement. however, in the same op-ed the mayor slammed romney for walking away from his previously held positions on climate change, immigration, and healt

so many ways as a result of actions taken by the obama administration. >> that goes into the whole debate over this auto bailout, and as we made the point about three or four years ago right after the auto bailout, gm goes and so goes the obama presidency and so goes the election. this campaign with so much attention focused on ohio, one in eight jobs are related somehow to the auto industry there. you see the romney campaign try to make a move and correct things. the question is whether it's too late and whether they're being hit very hard on this current attack that they've had on that jeep ad. >> thank you so much. greatly appreciate you coming on. we'll see what happens there. thank you, mark. massachusetts senator scott brown and elizabeth warren canceled their final debate for tonight as a result of hurricane sandy. in statements both candidates said going forward with the fourth debate would be, quote, inappropriate. it's after a new boston globe poll shows the race tied with brown slightly leading warren 45-43. you know there's a university poll out saying warren is up arou

end of this whole process with the editorial board that there were four more years of an obama administration would change any of that and particularly momentum on the economic front was just something that this board just couldn't see. governor romney by virtue of his experience and strong business acumen coming through the executive ranks of what he did in massachusetts, the board felt very strongly and confidently that he was the one who could best position the country for an economic revival and jump start the economy with with meaningful salaries and jobs. >> what's the immediate reaction of iowans to your paper's endorsement? >> you know, thomas, the great thing about being in iowa is we have incredibly smart readers and voters. this is the first republican endorsement we've made since 1972. we've got some of them right and some wrong. there's some you wish you could take back, i'm sure. this isn't about "the register" or our endorsement. this is a state with enkridably thoughtful and very, very smart readers and voters who will listen to us and also more importantly sit

worked so closely with president obama. . you were a former administrator and a politician. what did you make of that scene? >> well, i was a governor and i had crises and disasters in my state. they were mostly fires, storms also. but when you get and need federal support and the federal government is the entity that can provide blankets and medicine and rebuilding homes and -- so you feel that you need them. and i think emotionally governor christie felt that president obama and the federal government were in there for him, were helping, and did a good job. i think governor christie deserves enormous credit for saying that. he could have just been very political. he wasn't. president obama wasn't political. i think his bipartisanship is what is going to be needed after the election that we saw in new jersey and we're seeing in the northeast and we should keep that out of politics. >> i want to ask about the attack on the consulate in benghazi. this story is no longer about mitt romney's response. how big a problem is this for the obama administration? >> well, what needs to hap

rescue initiated under the bush administration and executed under the barack obama team. an estimated 160,000 of them wouldn't have jobs if the government wouldn't have stepped in with loans. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health insurance for the first time. after all that, the president's re-election would come to rest at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 mill

, what do you think? >> i think it overreads -- i mean, look, there's no question that the obama administration is both trying to do right by policy and governance and by politics the week out from an election. we've heard you guys on the show the last couple days where this is a place where good government rhymes with good politics. it's not trying to elbow its way into new york at the statue of liberty. they're saying hey, you guys want us to come? we'll be there. governor christie thinks it's good for his state. he doesn't want a political backdrop either. but he wants to get help for the people of his state. mayor bloomberg has been obviously disappointed with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >>

in that respect. the real challenge for any new administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i find one if i lose one? that's what matters at an individual level. >> we know how that factor into who the public will vote for on tuesday. who makes me feel more comfortable about my future. >> what's odd about this is you think those areas hurting the most would be most likely to blame washington and president obama. they're most likely to vote democratic. people who do not have jobs who are struggling and not earning sufficient income seem much more likely to

romney asking voters what do you want, just tell me, i'll tell you. president obama's revile of general motors and chrysler which in all likelihood would have been liquidated had his administration not kept them above water with a government-led rescue in 2009 is pretty popular in ohio. popularity is an obstacle to mitt romney who opposed a key part of the rescue when initiated by the bush administration and now finds himself with a stubborn polling deficit in a state he more or less has to win to win the presidency. so, the romney campaign has e a escalated their attempts to rewrite the history of the auto rescue and are now simply making things up about the current auto industry that exists today. they claim that president obama sold chrysler to italians who plan to build jeeps in china. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama, fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacocca and "the detroit news." obama took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italian
